Thesis work by students completing master’s degrees at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) is now live at risdgrad.show. Grad Show 2021 invites viewers to experience an expansive range of exploratory work by emerging artists and designers. The digital publication includes work by students in Architecture, Ceramics, Digital + Media, Furniture Design, Glass, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Interior Architecture, Jewelry + Metalsmithing, Landscape Architecture, Liberal Arts, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textiles, and Teaching + Learning in Art + Design.
Due to the pandemic, RISD’s annual graduate thesis exhibition is being shown for the second year via the digital publication, this year with an additional, limited in-person exhibition. Work by more than 200 graduate students is shown through images, videos, and text relating to their final thesis work, along with links to their own websites and social media accounts. The in-person exhibition at the RISD Museum’s Chace Gallery and the WaterFire Arts Center is open to current students, faculty, and staff in RISD’s spring 2021 COVID-19 testing pool.
About Graduate Study at RISD
Based in deep disciplinary immersion and creative exploration, graduate study at RISD brings together students who conduct cutting-edge research, constantly ask questions, and develop rewarding, hands-on relationships with materials. Extending beyond the studio and classroom, every facet of the experience helps cultivate a community of artists and designers fully committed to learning how to articulate strong concepts through close attention to process and the intricate details of creative practice.
